Mr. Maclennan

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what his Department's policy is on(a) advertising and (b) acknowledging company sponsorship on the websites of his Department, agencies and non-departmental public bodies; which companies (i) have placed advertisements and (ii) are acknowledged as sponsors on those websites; how much revenue has been received for each financial year since 1997 from such advertisements and sponsorship; and if that revenue has been retained within the budget of his Department, agencies and non-departmental public bodies.

Mr. Timms

The Chancellor of the Exchequer's Department have not accepted advertising on, nor sponsorship for, their websites. Therefore, the Departments have not received income to retain.

However, if they were to accept advertising or sponsorship they would follow the practice laid down in the Government website standards and the standards that are applied to all other forms of publicity.
